While the food's pretty good, the tables are crammed very closely together. It's also ridiculous to try to figure out dessert as you must somehow maneuver from your table to a display case which is located in a traffic area by the door. A real nuisance which disrupts your dinner conversation and enjoyment. We skip dessert. Avoid this place in... More

Heard about this restaurant from friends. Stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. After sitting found the table to be dirty. The server really didn't try very hard to clean it. The menu is just weird. Very specific choices and not lots of them. Would have like to see some better Italian pastas on it. As for the food? Boring.... More

First off, I will mention that most people I know really enjoy Cafe Amore. I have visited several times and just have never been struck by their menu or atmosphere - even when they had more than one location. Tables are a little too close together for my liking. Average menu, priced a little on the high side for what... More

The lunch menu has enough options without being burdened with too many choices, and everything looks good. The food is good, but the portion sizing is not consistent. The stuffed sole, although excellent if you like lots of garlic and butter, was a modest portion compared to some of the pasta offerings. The ambience is comfortable and casual. The server... More

My husband and I enjoyed the paella for two! Great flavor. Very traditional. Service was great! Date night menu is fun and reasonable in price. Portions are smaller but adequate. Unless you want to pig out /gorge. Leave satisfied with a taste meal.

I went to Cafe Amora with a couple of girlfriends. I'm vegan, so I asked the server if they would be able to make some of vegetarian dishes vegan. After talking to the chef, the server informed me that they wouldn't be able to, but offered to make me a pasta dish off the menu. I had 5 different options... More

Yet again, another fabulous meal. We brought friends this time who had never been to this yummy restaurant and they were raving as well. The Caesar salad is a favorite of mine and the pasta is always perfect. The dessert window never disappoints either. Brava, Cafe Amore!
